Wisp - Nordic Puzzle Adventure

Greetings, touchArcade!

I'd like to make you all aware of a new game that me and my friends at Triolith Entertainment are soon releasing: Wisp!

Wisp is an ambient nordic-inspired puzzle adventure which emphasizes exploration and navigation rather than intense action.

Eira is lost and You have to help her find her way home. However, the journey won’t be without danger. In the forest the ancient creature Fáfnir lies bleeding; from its blood an evil being is created. Lost and surrounded by evil, Eira have to avoid being consumed while solving the mysteries ahead of her. Guide Eira through three worlds with ten levels each while collecting crystals, solving puzzles and avoiding dangers.

The gameplay of Wisp consists of You guiding Eira home with intuitive controls native to the smartphone. Use the elements of frost, fire and earth to solve the puzzles and mysteries ahead and find her way home. Simply press the screen to make Eira float, and tilt your phone left or right to navigate around the levels.

This looks great! Are you guys thinking of adding touch controls for movement in addition to the tilting?

@saiyukialex: Yes, Retina-graphics. Game Center will also be included.

@Ventara: Thank you!
We tried adding touch-controls earlier in development and we found that it didn't work to our satisfaction (i.e. your hand got in the way most of the time).
Thanks for the suggestion though! Any more thoughts?
